If Bordeaux has taught us one thing, it’s that there is something special in the way Cabernet and Merlot combine with Petit Verdot into something greater than the sum of its parts. And there’s also something special about the way each of these varieties expresses itself on Red Mountain, holding onto their European sense of herbs, freshness and minerality, while bringing a power and density that’s completely Washington. Harmonious, balanced, each adding a unique personality, these varieties Coalesce into a wine that’s Pure Red Mountain.
The 2018 Coalesce is our Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Petit Verdot, all from Red Mountain. It continues the theme of the 2018 red wines…plushly textured, rich and elegant. But this sultry fella also has a purity of fruit and aromatic complexity uncommon for a Red Mountain wine this young, making it unusually smooth and harmonious. Wine critic Robert Parker called it “delightful.” We couldn’t agree more.
